Pro Tips & Best Practices

Check-In and connect with team members at least once a week to identify tasks and action items that will help in accomplishing goals and pushing the business forward.

Schedule regular and consistent Check-Ins to ensure that feedback is provided in a timely manner and that expectations are aligned.

Discuss with the employee how you both plan to capture highlights from your ongoing performance and growth Check-In’s. The new Check-Ins feature in the TalentQuest Talent Management system is a practical way to do this.

Ensure goals stay aligned and relevant by scheduling quarterly goal Check-Ins. Use this time to discuss progress, to readjust goals, and create new goals.

Use Check-Ins to review skill development in addition to business goals.

Remember that Check-Ins should be a conversation that includes input from the employee about how they perceive their performance, progress, or impact.

Communicate and Check-In frequently with the employee’s critical stakeholders to seek helpful feedback that can be shared with the employee during your Check-Ins with them.
